From the Maryland State Fairgrounds:
The 3rd Annual Baltimore County Farmers Market at the Maryland State Fairgrounds has made some sweet mooves by adding Prigel Family Creamery, with their local ice cream and milk, to its line-up of Baltimore County farmers and producers. In addition, the Farmers Market, featuring high quality local produce, milk, ice cream, flowers, baked goods, and more will have a new convenient location with free parking at the Maryland State Fairgrounds Main Gate (next to the new digital sign) at 2200York Road, and will be open.
“A variety of fresh in-season fruit and vegetables starting with strawberries, asparagus, spinach, lettuce, spring onions and more will be available each week. Chicken, beef, eggs, honey and now milk and ice cream are just a few of the other featured local items.”
Among the participating Baltimore County Farmers: Albright Farms; Basignani Winery; Deep Run Farm; Hills Forest Fruit Farm; One Straw Farm; Pahl’s Farm; Prigel’s Family Creamery; Quite A Stir Bakers; Warns Produce Farm; White House Fresh Flowers; and more.
